The Public Highway

A Highway Licence is required for ALL skips placed on the public highway. No Exceptions!

Other things to consider....


Is the drive suitable to take the weight of our Skip Lorry?

Our vehicles can weigh up to 18 tonnes when lifting a full skip.

It is the customers' responsibility to ensure the surface where the skip is to be placed is adequately protected.

Do not move the skip once it has been positioned by our vehicles as this could cause problems on collection and cause damage.

To ensure access is clear for the delivery, exchanging or collection of the skip.

To notify our staff on booking of any possible obstructions (e.g. overhead cables or branches/trees)

Do you have any other restrictions?

Is it a shared driveway?

Are there any manhole covers that will need protecting?

It is not advisable to place a skip onto an unprotected tarmac drive during a hot summer.

Our vehicles will not drive over unmade/dirt road during wet periods.

It is the customers' responsibility to notify our office when the skip is filled.

To pay the hire charge in full before requesting a collection.

The responsibility of the Non-Hazardous waste only transfers to T J Skips Ltd once payment in full has been received.

All Hazardous, non-accepted items and incorrectly deposited conditional wastes, and/or waste exceeding the sides of the skips will remain the Waste Producers responsibility irrespective of payment
